Bouncy B-Town legends Peace are making a comeback with new album, Kindness is the New Rock and Roll, that’ll be gracing our ears on May 4th. With their first album in three years they’re showing signs of change with the latest single Power and last years release From Under Liquid Glass which shall both feature on the album.
Announcing the news, lead singerHarry Kisser released a dramatic statement saying “My studies in the whole Rock & Roll is dead versus Rock & Roll will never die investigation have led me to believe this: After generations of focused monetisation, corporate contamination & moral depravation, Dead lies the cadaver of rock and roll past. But of course, as we know from the fabric of our own universe, Death is a doorway into life. Thus, upon death, born is the New rock & roll, free of it’s former warts & boasting a very simple mantra, That everyone can make the world a better place by being a lil’ kinder. Some people love guitars, Some people hate electronic computer music, some people hate both but if we respect the union of opposing forces, it becomes clear that simply none of that matters. What i’m trying to say is that rock and roll is dead & also rock and roll will never die but if you take a closer look, Kindness actually is, the new rock and roll.
I’ve been Harry Koisser, X”
